  1. Rinse beef liver and pat dry. Cut into thin-sliced strips and transfer to a medium-size bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, red wine vinegar, aji amarillo pepper paste and garlic. Pour over sliced liver and stir to blend. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Remove liver and drain thoroughly. Discard marinade.
  3. Heat oil in a hot skillet over high heat. Add liver slices and stir fry for 4 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until moisture has evaporated, and liver reaches an internal temperature of 160°F. Remove cooked liver and set aside.
